The Water-Babies


Published September 11, 2007


LibriVox recording of The Water-Babies, A Fairy Tale for a Land Baby is a novel by the Reverend Charles Kingsley, first published in its entirety in 1863. Though some of the author's opinions are very dated now, the journey of a little chimney-sweep water-baby through rivers and storms, under sea and over iceberg, is still a classic, wonderful children's adventure.

Summary by Cori Samuel. Music from Berlioz's Roman Carnival Overture at musopen.com
